You’ll find it’s a great way to get acquainted with the people who’ll be helping you while you’re on the road. Plus, it’ll give you a chance to get a deeper appreciation of our unique family environment here at Western Express.


Founded in 1991 by Donna and Wayne Wise, Western Express was born from a dream and built on hard work and determination. We've grown from a small operation to a leading truckload carrier with a nationwide presence. From Maine to California, our 3,600+ GPS-trackable power units and 9,500+ trailers serve a wide range of shipping needs, including dry van, flatbed, dedicated and expedited truck/rail options. Headquartered in Nashville, TN, we're a privately-owned, service-focused company that considers our drivers, associates, customers, and vendors as part of our extended family. At Western Express, we're not just in the business of logistics - we're in the business of success.


At Western Express, we understand that sometimes having a co-pilot is the best way to travel. Along with the option for teaming, we also offer a rider policy so you can bring a friend or family member with you. We also allow pets!
